Fact Finding Report on UPHC CHimpu – Arunachal Pradesh

Post Date: Monday, July 1, 2019


01.07.2019: In light of the statistical data about both Arunachal Pradesh and Papum Pare, which has been presented in the introduction, this fact-finding report seeks to investigate the fulfilment of the right to health, in the form of the Indian Public Health Standards, in Papum Pare District, ARP. Research for this fact-finding report was conducted by a team of lawyers and social activists of the Human Rights Law Network (HRLN), who visited Urban Primary Health Centre Chimpu on 27 March 2019. In addition, other health facilities in the Papum pare were visited during the same week. The findings of these other visits, however, fall outside of the scope of this fact-finding report and will therefore not be discussed here.

The visit to Chimpu Urban Primary Health Centre consisted of three main methodological approaches:

  • A physical inspection of the Urban Primary  Health Centre premises in their current state.
  • Interviews with healthcare workers at Urban Primary Health Centre, including but not limited to nurses, specialists, and administrative staff.
  • Interviews with patients who are sitting in the designated waiting areas and are awaiting medical treatment or consultancy.

The identities nor the specific designations are disclosed in reasons of privacy.
